20 April 2009 – This afternoon / evening I shot portraits with the guys from Senses Fail and they were really nice guys. Having worked with SO many bands I know how busy the members schedules can be when they are touring so I tried to make sure that I use as little time of theirs as I can and the guys definitely appreciated this.
I shot with them at around 6pm so there were already a good bunch of kids waiting outside the venue so we couldn’t go outside to avoid being bombarded with their fans. For this reason I decided to shoot in the loading levels of the Academy so that they could just relax and then head on to have some dinner before the show. I think that these came out quite cool and it was without doubt the quickest I have ever set up, photographed and packed away in my life (totaling 15 minutes – if that).
For me it was a real privilege because the band currently has Jason Black (from Hot Water Music) helping them out with bass and they are my BEST band ever.

Update – My photos have been used in an interview with the band at Clink Magazine.
